We stayed in a nearby airbnb and caught breakfast here a couple of mornings. Good coffee and breakfast burrito - solid food, freshly made.

Into the night people are sitting around tables and talking. Beverages are tasty and the offerings only lack matcha. Food is good, but the offerings are slight, leaning towards breakfast-brunch-lunch-snack. I was tempted to stop again, while walking my Sister's dog, to stop in order a tea and sit a while outside on a dark moon night, while the lights... More

I went to cafe on 1st starving and ready to eat anything. Their basic breakfast burrito caught my eye and I ordered my eggs well done...when it came out it looked like chicken fettuccini wrapped in a tortilla. Egg soup my friend called it. When I returned it and asked for a scone instead the staff was very friendly and... More

Perfectly made coffee, and I'm particular. The staff were warm and happy. Inside is well designed for groups or couples. Nice outside seating as well.

There are couches and tables (depending on when you come, there may or may not be a table to work on) to get your work done. They sell a ton of drinks and food so it's a one stop shop if you're looking for somewhere... More

The serice was neither friendly nor efficient. We enjoyed our coffee and tea but our sandwiches we wrapped in foil which is more conducive to wraps. My sandwich not only came out incorrect i only had one slice of bread. Sandwich portions were small as well to be 7 bucks. The ingredients did seem to be fresh so i suppose... More

One of the best place I've been in Salt Lake City while i was on vacation around there. Enjoyed most of the beverages that they sell there especially the "London Fog" with Lavender Syrup. Actually one of the best earl grey I've ever had. The cafe atmosphere is pretty nice and actually one of the best to sit around and... More
